Imagining New York City's Future - the .nyc TLD Message Board › .nyc TLD 5-6 PM today via G+ Hangout "Engaging The Public's Imagination"
Jackson Heights, NY
The .nyc TLD will be activated next year and youridea.nyc will become available. Today from 5-6 PM (Thursday, September 5) we'll be discussing ways to fruitfully engage the public in planning for its arrival. We'll meet online at a Google Hangout.
Research indicates that 85% of the public is unaware of a TLD's role. We'll discuss ways to reduce that number while inviting New Yorkers to help set policies that assure the TLD serves the public interest.
We'll review the barriers to effective participation in public policy formation - lack of awareness, low literacy, and information overload - and how we might breach them. The focus will be on:
City Hall's .NYC Advisory Board is turning its attention to this matter and your thoughts will be brought to the Board's attention. (I'm a member.)
Please join me at 5 today at this Google Hangout.
